Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg and Tim Cook named the most influential people in UK media 2014

Tim Cook

The Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page is the most powerful person in the UK media, according to The Guardian’s annual power list, the MediaGuardian 100.

The second spot is held by Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, highlighting Facebook’s worldwide reach with a user base of 1.35 billion.  Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, took the 3rd spot, round out the top three of the Media 100, a list that ranks the most powerful and influential people in UK media.

For Larry Page, Google should do no less than create the future.

“In technology what we need is revolutionary change, not incremental change,” Page said earlier this year in an onstage interview.
